The secret of Robbo's quick recovery

Last updated : 19 April 2004 By Michael Morris
Robinson was injured only 13 mins into the game against Millwall and he was then written off for at least the Palace and Wigan games and possible last Suturdays win over Burnley but amazingly Robinson was fit to play against Crystal Palace just 3 days after the Millwall injury. He also started at Wigan and last Saturday.

His secret? Accupuncture.

"I was shocked, I didn't think I'd be playing against Palace," he told the Sports Echo.

But the accupuncture did the trick and I had a fitness test a couple of hours before the Palace game. OK it was a gamble but it came off in everything but the result."
